The statue is impressive. You are paying 5 or 6 euro/person and going up by elevator. Will have a good view/panorama of that area.

This monument is huge, and right in the middle of a very busy traffic area. But don't let that stop you. It is worth seeing. Impressive statues adorn the lower section with Columbus pointing West from the top. At least that's what the guide said....More

La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry
riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard,
and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La
Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll
past impressive human statues and artists while others
take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at
one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic
Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and
